Drawing and Painting the Multicultural Way

Ref: C2339954

In this course we will investigate the arts, crafts and other culture of a chosen area of the world. This will be done through watching slide presentations, looking at books and searching the internet. Students will then start work on their own projects inspired by what they have seen. A wide variety of media are available to explore for example paint, silk paint, batik, Lino. The emphasis is on self exploration and experimentation. Practical help will be given as and when needed.
